Accessorize to Look Slimmer in an Instant

In the weeks up till now, I've written and taught about the importance of posing and lighting in photos. But another big element to achieving great stills is accessorizing.  

Unless you're Dita Von Teese, showing off a curvy figure in pictures might require us to slim our waists. Forget photoshop; we don't need that. I'm talking about a gift from the photography gods: the accessory belt. It's been my secret until now.

Belts are the cool kids’ answer to suspenders. Not only have they kept our pants from falling down for centuries but also they have stylishly shaped our waists along the way. Now that hip belts have become passé and waist belts are back in vogue, we should take advantage of it!

Belts aren't just for pants either. Shape your favorite dresses with either a thin or a thick belt, and go from flat to va-va-voom in seconds!
